Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

2014-05-08, 4:33 AM

That's my problem, when I search for my WiFi card (the stock one), the only driver I find is seemingly for Bluetooth only.  And it's a Bluetooth software suite rather than driver too.  I installed it, and it did not update the Bluetooth driver--only installed a Bluetooth management utility.  I just want the drivers.

Should show up as the third one down with the filters in the following pic:

You'll then be taken to a page with a bunch of different files. Wireless_17.0.0_De164.zip (should be the second one down) is the file you'll want for drivers only and for Windows 8.1 64-bit.

 

edit: or go to the one under that where it says "for windows 8.1*" instead of "for IT administrators" and you can grab wireless_17.0.0_De164.exe which is the same driver just as an exe instead of a zip.

The Lenovo person updated using the driver from Lenovo's driver webpage, I also noticed this is a driver from last year (Nov I think) so I was thinking this might not work as the people here must have done this already... but she unchecked that power save (my post step 3) and uninstall “Intel(R) Smart Connect Technology” (my post step 5)

I can not see them updating the driver on the Lenovo page on the sly and not upping the revision number etc. BTW, I did an automatic search if this driver was the latest before I called Lenovo and said there were no newer available but the Lenovo person forced it to update from the downloaded driver.

My Yoga WiFi hasn't dropped connection once since it was updated with the info I posted earlier.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Wifi Problems

i have to join this thread because of my wifi issuesthat started today...

 

I downloaded all the new drivers to try to fix the problems i had from day one (selecting text and files, parts of screen that i suddenly couldnt use anymore, colours and brightness issues) most have been solved as far as i can tell after few hours...

 

I also installed the latest wifi drivers and thats when problems started to occur. With the 16.5 drivers i havent had any issues, but after installing 16.10 i got my first drop within 5 minutes, and again 10 minutes later.

So i de-installed 16.10 and installed 16.5 again. I'll report if its good again...

 

I was under the assumption that new drivers fix issues and not give issues

 

no info about that new driver that was in testing and solved these things? lots of pages past without new comments of lenovo reps

All,

 

There have been a string of new drivers and perhaps some improvement with each.  

 

About the time of the initial release of Yoga 2 Pro, we had an updated wifi driver that I referenced early in the thread and we believed was going to be the solution.

 

I believe our Idea development team is testing / qualifying newer drivers for release here.

 

The Intel 7260 wifi card should be similar / common that used in the ThinkPad line.

 

We tested today and found that the recentently released ThinkPad 17.0.2 wifi driver will install on the Yoga 2 pro, and based on some informal testing, it seems to offer some further improvement.

 

While this is not our "official" solution, you might want to try this out.  Here is a link the X240 ThinkPad page where the wifi drivers are listed.  Please pick the one specific to your OS - probably Win 8/8.1.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

I might have to give it a try. I still can't use Bluetooth and Wifi at the same time (my phone doesn't seem to have a problem with this?).

That's too bad. So far I haven't had a single disconnect or any other issue since installing it a few hours ago (knocks on wood). Keeping my fingers crossed for continued stability!
